I gave this box to my niece and nephew for their birthdays. As children being homeschooled we are always on the look for gifts that are entertaining and joyous for the kids to have. This box fit the bill perfectly. They loved every box and learned so much! I would also like to take a moment and recognize the amazing and caring customer service this company has, as a small business myself they were prompt to communicate with and so caring with each and every email. They are a wonderful example of what it truly means to shop small. Thank you so much for all you do and I can not wait to come back soon!
My 5 year old son received a 3 month subscription for his birthday and not only was he excited to receive mail but he could not wait to complete the activities. For a child, the stories and activites are engaging and fun. As a parent, the boxes help us explain topics to our kids such as emotional regulation, not giving up, and patience. The comic book style story telling is perfect. We loved it so much that we sent a gift to our nephew. I cannot recommend this enough. We also experienced a problem with one of our boxes (user error on my part) and the customer support was phenomenal.
This box is amazing! I bought it for Christmas for my nephew who lives many states away, and my sister-in-law took a video of him opening the box. Great quality and mix of amazing items! I’m hoping to watch the engineer in him (he’s only about to be 6!!) put it all together in a video call!
So I absolutely adore this for my five year-old son who has been exhibiting a ton of frustration and issues around anger management. He gets so upset with his legos (for example) when they don't do what he wants them to or he drops something he's been working on. I've been working with him on meditative and visualization techniques but... he's 5, It's not easy for him to remember to be mindful when things aren't going his way. He was so super excited to get this box! He immediately created an entire story around it about how the "coy" (mentor to all people super) must have been watching him and knew he'd make a great cadet. He was adamant to begin and finish all of his missions immediately and I've been using it as a reminder that they coy may be watching him to determine if he is really cadet material and what would a good cadet do right now. Just fantastic! I don't think this would be great for him at age 10 (as mentioned in the recommended age range) but for 4-6 maybe 7 year-olds, definitely awesome! He's convinced that when he finishes his missions at the academy, he'll receive his super suit. Guess I need to start shopping for that ;-)
My 6 year old twin boys and I LOVE the Superpower Academy box! I found it when I was searching for some tools to use to help with Growth Mindset for them when they were 5. They were so hard on themselves and discouraged when something didn’t happen as the expected - whether it was a marble run or a Car racing track or practice writing spelling words. Doing the Superpower Academy activities and talking about the messages in each one really put us on the right track! We have our next boxes on the way now and we are all checking the mailbox every day for them! Thank you so much Superpower Academy for helping my boys find their inner superpowers!!
BRILLANT! I had high expectations when I purchased this as Christmas gifts for my two nieces (5 & 6) and nephew (6). I wanted to gift them something different. The lessons are deliberate and packaged as fun they can identify with. Who wouldn’t want to be their own superhero? The kids (3 different families) constantly send me videos of their projects and their parents all tell me it is the one gift they have been going back to after all the Christmas excitement has settled. The boxes are fun and unique. I love the learning that I’ve given the kids. As they’ve told me, “Superheroes have feelings too!” Pamela is responsive and was quick to personally answer the few questions I’ve had along the way. This is a perfect product for modern times and will be my “go to” gift from here on out.
We loved Superpower Academy for so many reasons. Of all the different games and toys we've purchased over the years, this is the first to really encourage growth mindset and design thinking. We've tried other kits from different companies in the past, and while those were fun, they didn't really encourage creativity or problem-solving because there was a set of instructions you needed to follow and only one right way to do things...With Superpower Academy, it was so refreshing to see my 7-year-old son engrossed in a project where mistakes are a good thing! And even though the kit came in a box, I love that it encouraged him to literally think "outside the box." After the tail of his glider kept falling off on his first design, he started looking around the house for materials he could incorporate into his design to make it more stable and fly better. It was amazing to see that spark of creativity and enthusiasm.
Not only did the boys LOVE their Superpower surprise boxes - the customer service was A-MAZ-ING. When I ordered these it wasn't only "one of those days" it had been one of those WEEKS, and Pamela was on-the-ball, in record time to assist and fix with a smile. Those are the employees that really great companies are made out of. I can't tell you how much I needed and appreciate that level of commitment and personal touch in that moment. I recommend the Superpower academy subscription boxes kids of ALL AGES!! <3
We have been ordering this for my 6yr old for about a year now and he has loved every single box! He looks forward to delivery day with such anticipation. He loves to build the projects and read as he goes. This is good for almost any age. The craftsmanship is beautiful and worth every cent.
I bought this subscription for my grand daughter. She loves it. It also helps keeps us connected as I live several states away. She knows Nana is thinking of her and sending her a gift every month.
I really like the parallel of the superhero having powers and my child gaining skills that promote growth mindset.
Not only are the boxes phenomenal, but the customer service is outstanding! Our family situation is unique and Pamela reached out to us to ensure we got something tailored to our needs. She was also very accommodating when we asked to have multiple boxes shipped to us at once. I have already recommended this subscription service to multiple friends and family members - if you're on the fence about this one, GET IT. You won't regret it!
My son is 10 years old and in 4th grade. He loved his first box. we are excited to see what the next month will be like.
My granddaughter and I enjoyed doing this together. Even grandpa got involved.First there was a story then a project that related to it. It made our short visit quality time.
For Christmas, I was searching for an “experience” that I could give my 9-year old granddaughter. I happened upon Superpower Academy. It certainly fills the bill. She anxiously awaits the monthly boxes and very much enjoys the activities and learning experiences. I also want to commend Pamela for her customer service. She is very hands on and proactive. For example, given the volume of shipping over the holidays, I cut it close with my order and was very anxious about the first box arriving in time for Christmas Day. Pamela did everything possible, including tracking my package for me and even offering to express ship a duplicate package. She sent me regular email updates as to status. Fortunately, the initial package arrived in the nick of time! Also, after the first box arrived, I realized I had caused a name error. So I reached out to Pamela and asked if she could correct it for me. Again, she responded immediately and took care of the correction for me. Bottom line, I highly recommend Superpower Academy — fun, great learning experience and fantastic customer service!
My kids always get excited when a Superpower box arrives. I love seeing them have fun while learning from a thoughtfully designed educational subscription.
My boys love getting the boxes in the mail and the activities are great for stimulating their creativity. Highly recommend!
